6:28pm
trend some are not happy with, including the national organization for marriage. over the phone, one spokesperson said this is not a constitutional issue but a policy judgment that should be left to the people and their votes.

6:32pm
education or access to a better education. >> so now what does the state think about all this? well, state board members express strong support and authorize the superintendent and president of schools to draft a formal comment on the waiver. now here is the rub. if the nine districts get approval for their plan, you can look for lots of other districts to line up right behind them. and the u.s. is about to cast a much wider cyber security net with a new plan that will affect many of the country's private sector employees. the white house has signed an executive order expanding a cyber security program that scans internet traffic heading into and out of defense contractors. workers at big banks, utilities and key transportation companies will have their e-mailings and web surfing scanned as a precaution against cyber attackinattac attacks. and compromise and peace, that was the message president obama delivered today on the second day of his middle east trip. more from our world tonight.
